Blog 2: Western Union Band 

Hey Everyone!

You may have noticed that the tag line for Mark Edwards Music is "real life real music"...that being said, I want to introduce you to a new project that I am heading up under the name  "Western Union Band"; a classic country music ensemble. This is the kind of story-telling song writing that has most listeners saying "ya I know what you mean, I've been there". This is the kind of music I also enjoy write personally and I am very excited about the opportunity to band together with a great group of musicians and singers and play for audiences everywhere. Listeners will enjoy a mix of my original story-telling songs with a collection of covers, playing tribute to the greats like Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson, Dolly Pardon and more. Be sure to check us out at WesternUnionBand.com!

Thank you,

Mark Edwards

Blog 1: Thank You! 

The first thing I want to say is thank you. I'm told that writing a blog is a good way to reach out to those who appreciate the music I write and perform. So a big thank you to you, the fans and the listeners of my music. But I would not have gotten this far in terms of digital and social media reach without the help of my oldest lad, Daniel Edwards, who put it all together. Thank you to Paul Stevens, who helped guide us in terms of marketing. Thank you to my daughter Melissa who helps me with many things including vocals and song choice. And thank you to the close support of my family and friends such as my youngest lad, Jonny and my wife Marie, who helps with great ideas and financial gifts to help get things started. So overall, this inaugural blog is about being thankful for great people in my life.
